I am absolutely heartbroken today. The soap opera, The Guiding Light has been canceled. After 72 years on the air and will cease to air September 18. I have been watching this soap my whole life. My mother was always watching the show when I was a child and I even remember it in black and white. I knew when they started changing the way it was filmed and the story lines were getting ridiculous that they were losing me as a watcher. It will be like losing an old friend and in some respects part of my mother as I identify the show with her. So very, very sad.
